I just wanted to share a thought I was having. I suppose it was sparked by this book I just started reading, about a gnostic text called the Gospel of
Thomas. He said, If you can see the significance behind my words, you will not make the transition from 'life' through 'death.' The meaning is, a
transitional period of non-awareness. That being said, I would like to share some relevant experiences I have had.
First of all, when I was much younger, around 7-8, I fell from a tree, 35 feet in the air, and landed on my head. My temples bled, and if they would
have for just the smallest amount of time longer they say I would have died. During the time of my fall and after, I had some very interesting
experiences. First of all, I maintained awareness as I fell, and even some time after, when they don't think I had consciousness. In this time, I
realized that I could perceive reality in different ways, and shift between them. I could see reality as a picture-show, one every few seconds, with
audio. Or else I could get full color and motion video, with no audio. I could get black and white visuals. I realized that I could consciously switch
between these states.
Anyways, I have naturally lucid dreamed pretty much my whole life, I suppose starting around that time, come to think of it. I didn't even think it
was unusual to do it until quite a bit later, assuming everyone did it. More recently, I had taught myself to consciously fall asleep, through
hynpagogia, and enter a dream consciously, without losing awareness. I have sometimes seemingly maintained awareness in an even deeper, non-dream
state. I have had many experiences with communicating with some sort of extremely high intelligence, seemingly as 'higher beings' but perhaps
projections of my own consciousness that are beyond my conscious mind. They have explained very advanced concepts to me about the nature of reality,
my self, things which are to come, etc.
Some of these 'dreams' I have had, have been terrifying beyond description. Yet I learned that even the extreme negativity strengthened me, and thus
it was for my benefit. Quite recently, there has been a theme in my dreams of me dying. I have realized, that there was nothing to fear, death was not
really real, etc. In these dreams, I have consciously died, and maintained awareness. I have even shifted to a new dream, like a whole new reality,
being aware during the transition. So yes, this could give insight into a variety of things called 'supernatural,' given a variety of experiences I
have personally had.
